PIGS CAN FLY!
Ängelkottskompaniet was started in 2005 by György Ängelkott Bocz with the support of his wife and soulmate, Bitte "Badger" Ahrland.
Ängelkottskompaniet could most easily be described as a Renaissance company. Contrary to the popular belief that one has to narrow down and focus only on one small area to be successful, Ängelkottskompaniets founders, having multicoloured backgrounds, successfully combine several areas to carry out the following activities:
- Landscaping/garden design
- Business consultancy/Management support
- Sales of own products
The company motto is based on Ängelkotts and Bagers absolute conviction that nothing is impossible:
Bitte "Badger" Ahrland Bocz has worked with gardens and garden compositions since she was a young girl. Financing this interest she worked as a guide, travel agent, translator, proof reader and in the restaurant business. She also worked ten years for an internationl company that made amusement park designs all over the world.
Bitte is responsible for administration, soft landscaping, cooking, garden consultancy and sales.
The company was established in 2005 in Värmland, Sweden. After only half a year it was moved down to its current location at Illstorp, a small village in Österlen, in eastern Scania, Sweden. A show garden was built, including a rose-garden, a wild-garden, an orchard, a 12m x 10m natural pond and a walled cottage garden. Currently a victorian style vegetable garden and a 50m2 natural -swimming- pond together with a subtropical orangery/pool room are under construction.
The partner range of Ängelkottskompaniet has increased steadily during the first couple of years, but as the company follows a sustainabilty based, qualitiative, approach in development instead of increasing in size, only such projects are taken on that are found challenging or interesting.
György Ängelkott "Kotten" Bocz has a formal education in agriculture (MSc Agr. Eng., PATE ÁTK, Hungary) and successfully defended his Phd thesis in agricultural technology at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, at Alnarp, Sweden the autumn of 2012. He also has a diploma (B.Sc.) in Management siences from Oxford Brooks University. See his curriculum vitae by clicking HERE.
In Ängelkottskompaniet, Ängelkott is responsible for the Hungarian side of all activities as well as offers, on site activities, hard landscaping, building and maintenance together with connected consultancy activities.
